The next time a nay-sayer mentions that blogs or social networks aren’t safe for credit unions thanks to regulators, negative publicity, or that they’re not worth the effort you can point them directly to a new blog unveiled by the Transportation Security Administration… wait… the TSA?

Yep! The TSA has unveiled a new blog to better communicate why they do what they do. Check out the following article to learn more about the TSA’s efforts and don’t forget to take a look at the blog itself.

Why does this matter? This shows that if a government agency is willing to put themselves out on a limb a little, then more credit unions can do the same… not simply with blogs but with other “risky” propositions such as targeting young adults with new and different products that better serve their needs.

    >After 6 months, the TSA blog is still going strong. This just goes to show that if you have a subject that people are interested in (managing your finances?) and a few staff members not afraid to put fingers to keys, you can be successful in the blogosphere.

    I think the TSA blog is a great case study for any credit union trying to determine whether or not they can make a blog work.
